by tuesday. that doesn't mean there's a consensus yet. listen to this from the nra after today's white house meeting. quote, we were disappointed with how little this had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment. we will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of madmen. i'm in favor of a nationwide ban on semiautomatic assault weapons and high volume magazines. i want to see president obama increasing federal funding for mental health treatment for all americans who need it. meanwhile, there's another school shooting today in california. a 16-year-old reportedly felt he was being bullied was accused of attempted murder. the student took direct aim and hit one classmate in taft union high school. he then aimed specifically at another classmate and then missed. kyung lah is in california with the latest. every time you hear these stories right now, a shudder comes with it because of what happened at sandy hook. what do we actually know about what happened here? >> we're learning, actually, a little more. po
of mind when they drop their child off for first grade? >> over the line, the nra web video targeting the president's daughters. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? >> what's wrong with these people? you have children that had no say in the decision on whether their father is going to step forward to be president of the united states, what the nra once was, it no longer is. this extremism is so frightening. >> msnbc's joe scarborough will be with me in a few moments to say more about the nra tactics, as well as his thoughts on the future of the republican party. >>> and the gun fighters, inside "time" magazine's special report on gun control with managing editor rick stangle. >>> president morsi over his anti antisemetic tirade. >>> and candid clinton. how healthy is hilary? >> she's always been very, very healthy. i tell her, you know, she's still got hind to have three more husbands after me. >> bill clinton with dr. nancy snyderman. go
. >> indeed. the gaming industry is the last in a series of group meetings, including the nra and other gun groups yesterday. and it's their allies who are extremely eager to blame games or anything else for violent crime. >> i think there's a very good different view as to what the problem is and how to solve it. >> if we focus on the gun, we miss the opportunity in of this country to zero in on the real problem. >> the dangers of violent video games, but they get too many friends and donors in hollywood. >> we can eliminate knives in people's homes and baseball bats and hammers and take away blunt objects of any kind. >> okay. we can save lives by taking away video games, baseball bats, and blunt objects. but not guns. even though it was a military-style ar-15 semiautomatic that claimed the lives of 20 children and 6 staff members at sandy hook elementary. a similar weapon used by the accused mass murderer james holmes who killed 12 people and wounded more than 50 others at a movie theater in aurora, colorado. it was a gun, not a baseball bat, that took the lives of more than 335,000 amer
that he used, and clearly they are trying to shift the messaging and paradigm on this, because the nra made it all about they are coming for your guns and they are taking away your freedoms. instead, we're talking about gun safety, reducing gun violence. we're not talking about gun control. i think that's a very smart move for the white house, because again, it sort of lowers that initial barrier to get people to listen to the ideas that we're talking about. i thought it was very wise. >> joining us now from washington is the moderator of nbc's "meet the press," david gregory. good to have you. in terms of the remarks just now, karen said he's making the appeal to the notion of common sense. he put a raft of proposals on the table, but he also made a point to stress mental health protocols, to stress the fact he was going to hollywood on some of this to seem even handed in some of his suggestions. the other thing i thought was notable, he's calling on ordinary, everyday americans to talk to their friends, neighbors, elected representatives. this is part of the new obama playbook, which
on the table. the vice president's task force gets down to business bringing in the nra for the meeting. >>> responding to the backlash. brent musburger's bosses apologizing for his on air comments about the football star's beauty queen girlfriend. >>> balloon ride from hell. a camera is rolling as a wedding party's sky high tour takes a terrifying turn. they crashed. on their wedding day. good morning, welcome to "early start." happy to have you with us. >> it is january 9th, 5:00 a.m. in the east. and at the white house today, the national rifle association face to face on guns and gun control. actually that's tomorrow.nra confirming it will meet with vice president and its gun violence project tomorrow. but they don't sound excited about it. putting out a statement that reads we're sending a rep to hear what they have to say. listen to the response from the president's spokesman. >> we look forward to hearing from a variety of organizations and civic groups and others who have insights into this problem. >> if you're here to listen to them, they're here to listen to you. >> tprocess
the nra and representatives from the entertainment industry this evening. kathleen sebelius wills attend some of the meetings. it is a big step for president obama's new gun violence task force launched in the wake of the massacre at sandy hook elementary. but it did not necessarily leave many with high expectations. businesses that sell a lot of guns like walmart will also be in on some meetings. those groups are more likely to be influenced by the nra since they're making a big profit off those firearms. and they do not want to appear too entrenched in the white house's anti-gun push. >>> walmart says after the shooting, guns are now one of their highest-selling items. while it does want to help the administration, when that starts to contradict with sales that's where the help stops. the nra obviously has a lot of money and therefore a lot of power going into these talks but gabby giffords' new anti-gun group is looking to counteract that. she and her husband mark kelly kick started a campaign this week that they're calling common sense measures to curb gun violence. now, they're hopi
that the nra and its affiliates push so hard against. >> all they have to do is just accept reasonable restrictions. nobody is trying to take away your gun. nobody is trying to take away your right to go hunting or target shooting or have protection in your home. simply we're trying to have some reasonable things so people aren't killed. >> today the mayor's anti-illegal guns group is going on air with an ad that invokes sandy hook and features the mother of the youngest victim of that tucson shooting. >> 20 heart-broken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? >> indeed. the same question could be asked by a mother and father of one of the latest shooting victims in our daily tally of gun casualties, including a 15-year-old girl shot and killed early today in milwaukee. in maryland last night a gunman left one dead and one critically wounded before t
. >>> also, the president of the nra is here in "the situation room." we're getting his reaction to the sweeping proposals against gun violence. and the presidential inauguration only five days away. we'll take you inside the law enforcement command center working to keep him safe. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> this is cnn breaking news. >> let's get to the breaking news. a deadly terrorist attack on a gas field in eastern algeria near the libyan border. some of the more than 40 hostages seized have been released but a number of them are still being held, including americans. the state department confirms those americans are affiliated with the oil giant bp. let's bring in elise labott. the latest information you're getting is what? >> well, at first these assailants, these affiliated-al qaeda militants tried to storm a bus, these bp employees headed for an air field in nearby eastern algeria, that was not successful. then they stormed the compound of this living -- the living quarters of this air field and they took about 40 hostages. we understand that a
the president later this morning. ahead of the announcement, the nra is releasing a new ad with a personal attack against obama. it preemptively criticizes him for not supporting armed guards in schools and it calls him this. >> mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. >> president obama has secret service protection for his daughters, sasha and malia. asking if the president's kids are more important than yours. oh, my goodness, secret service protection, pretty customary for the president and his family. more bill next. these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative unc
used a semiautomatic assault weapon or large capacity ammunition magazines. >> the nra is of course fighting back, saying in a statement senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns from law abiding citizens for decades. they know gun bans don't work and we are confident congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong-headed approach. >> joining me, carolyn, who is pushing a similar bill in the house, and also philadelphia mayor michael nutter. welcome to you both. when i heard dianne feinstein today, very personal,vy emotional, reliving one of the horrific things she went through, as indeed you did. here's what i don't get. i don't get why within minutes, really, of this assault weapons ban being proposed, already we start to hear, it may be impossible to get it through the senate, through the house. and the main reason may be democrats. democrats who are too worried about their own spins and their own backyards and their own political careers to do what they probably believe would be the right thing for their country. what do you do to change their minds and therefore the chances
from the nra and he voted for reducing the waiting time from three days to one bag. do you think read a tipping point, that there will be some kind of a seismic change? >> yeah, i do. since the topic is politics and then to add that a lot of people widely credited in 1883 crandell for the reason republicans took the majority for the first time in 40 years. so it really has a lot to do with the politics. i'm very grateful to be at the university of chicago. just another know. only to chicago which sent and called the partisan bipartisan with david axelrod and rahm emanuel. but that's a whole different story. >> we had to come back as bipartisan and this issue. >> if you go so far to the right, come back to the left. but i think the conversation has changed since the unannotated disco stu i don't care whether it's begun discussion or pistol discussion, at this moment in time you have republican and i happen to be one of them with the nra that would be more than happy that a lot of republicans are more than happy to begin to have the conversation about guns. but it has to be the right co
president said he saw emerging consensus in some areas here. the nra said they were disappointed what is really going on here? >> that's right. that's essentially what we expected, the nra saying they wanted to come and listen to what the administration is talking about, but certainly the administration is looking for some tough guidelines here, to prevent violence in the future. so, some of the things that the vice president says has been emerging from the discussion. he pointed out these are not his recommendations, but what he's hearing from all of these meetings is, at the top of the list, universal background checks. not closing loopholes at sales, but universal background checks, and a ban on high capacity ammunition clips. these are two things that the vice president says has been emerging at the top of the list from the discussions he has been holding. but the nra obviously pushing back on this. clearly disappointed. disappointed, they said, by how these meetings have less to do with protecting the children and more to do with "the agenda, the attack on the second amendment, w
, colorado, and awful testimony coming out of that all week. if you are reporting this as well, that the nra has been invited to meet with the biden task force, so that joe biden and his group reaching out to try to at least touch base with, of course, the most vigorous and best organized opponents of any kind of gun lobby. >> it would be shock if anything they didn't. they're not going to have a chance if there isn't an effort to reach out the nra and see if there is any possibility of common ground, and if there's not, there's not. i'm struck by what could be different. during the whole assault weapons ban, yes, there is always in some of the things that victims -- that the victim families can get involved in a way that can move political debate, but it was still, i would argue, still sort of a political debate that wasn't personal. the newtown families, gabby giffords and mark kelly, folks in aurora, i -- you know, the power of these victims' families that could have on this political debate don't underestimate them. >> i know he was a hero to both of you. first to you. chuck todd, this i
their gun control agenda for two reasons. number one it's unconstitution. >> john: and the nra would never exploit a gun tragedy. with me know is john rosenthal co-founder of stop handgun violence and wrote "common sense about kids & guns." thank you for coming on with us tonight. thank you. >> what do you think about what is being considered about the task force. >> i strongly support the second amendment, but as the supreme court ruled the second amendment means you can't ban guns but you can put reasonable restrictions on how they're sold. in this country there isn't even a simple background check for all gun sales. literally 40% to 50% of gun sold every day are legally sold by private dealers to private individuals, including the mentally ill, and terrorists. al-qaida comes undetected to buy guns at gun shows. and the government says that's fine. the nra has bought and sold congress. they own the republican party. they've intimidated the democrats into submission, and although i think president biden biden's initiatives are just common sense the democrats in the house are going to run

's clear the proposals from the task force will be running head on into the nra. >> we know that it is -- there is no silver bullet. >> with vice president biden's task force the focus is starting to turn to what, if anything, can get passed with a congress in gridlock. but republican senator chuck grassley sounded positive about restricting high powered gun magazines and requiring background checks. >> i think we have to do things to make sure the database of the fbi has all of the information so people can't buy guns that shouldn't have guns. >> the vice president laid out some of the ideas emerging from his task force on thursday but did not mention a new assault weapons ban stirring speculation that the white house is dropping the proposal but the white house says that's not so. an administration spokesman told cnn avoiding this issue because it's been politically difficult in the past is not an option. that's despite what will be fierce opposition from the nation's top gun lobby, the national rifle association. >> i do not think there's going to be a ban on assault weap

. that will pit him squarely against the nra. >> everything that's been proposed impinges on people who have every right to own firearms. >> reporter: the nra has long been a lobbying force like no other. its unwavering opposition to gun control immortalized by its late president, charlton heston. >> from my cold, dead hands. >> reporter: recent polls suggest an opening for some gun control. a majority now favoring a ban on semiautomatic handguns. but it would be a mistake to think the nra's influence has waned. in the three weeks after the shooting in newtown, connecticut, the nra added more than 100,000 new members. jonathan karl, abc news, the white house. >>> and even as the vice president was holding those meetings in washington, another school shooting was taking place. this time, in california. police say a student snuck a shotgun into school and then struck one classmate in the chest and fired on another. fortunately, a heroic science teacher was able to talk him down and disarm him. a sheriff said that the 16-year-old gunman told investigators he targeted the two students because they had

with us on trying to reduce gun violence. they do not have to be afraid of the radical n.r.a. i say that because there are many gun owners in this country that are good citizens and they should not be tagged with some of these atrocities that are happening. and it's those that we have to call upon to reach out to their members of congress throughout this country because we are here to do the right thing. the president and the vice president are there to do the right thing. and they are going to use their office. but if we as americans don't also raise our voice, then this will begin another losing battle. we cannot afford to lose another battle. we have common sense issues to stop gun violence holistically, but when it comes down to trk the assault weapons -- to it, the assault weapons, large magazines made for our police officers and military, have no right to be on the street, and they do not. and i will say to you as our leader has said, we are all take the oath of the constitution of the united states. we have never tried to infringe on that to legal gun owners. in the package t
